Notice to City of Cocoa Beach Sewer Customers
"Smoke Testing Sewer Lines"

Cocoa Beach Water Reclamation Department will be comducting a smoke test of its sanitary sewer system,
Work crews will begin January 21, 2014 hanging informational door hangers, explaining when they will be starting, along with the expected completion of this work.
A "smoke test" survey will assist our inspection crew in locating breaks and defects in our sewer system. The smoke you see coming from the vent stacks on houses or holes in the ground is NON-TOXIC, NON-STAINING, HAS NO ODOR, WHITE TO FRAY IN COLOR AND CREATES NO FIRE HAZARD.
The smoke should not enter your home unless you have defective plumbing or dried up drain traps.
It is advisable for homeowners to pour a gallon of water into each floor drain prior to our testing. If smoke enters your home there is a good reason to assume that dangerous sewer gases may also be entering your home or business. IF SO, YOU SHOULD NOTIFY OUR WORK CREWS OR CALL 321-868-3243.
IMPORTANT! If there is any individual in your home or business who has respiratory problems and is immobile, please notify Cocoa Beach Water Reclamation Department at 321-868-3243 prior to the start of testing.
